If you are getting married in the run up to Christmas then you can either choose to embrace the festivities or ignore them all together! But we all know that it’s the little details that help to make your wedding day special (and lots of fun to plan!) and if you want to add a festive touch here and there your confetti petals are an easy and fun way to do so.
Festive Confetti Mixes
The confetti moment traditionally marks the start of the wedding celebrations – your friends and family shower your first steps as a married couple with pretty petals to wish you love and luck in your new life together. It’s loads of fun and gets the party started after the formal ceremony! Many guests won’t bring their own confetti, knowing that many venues have banned messy paper and metallic confetti – but you don’t want to miss that magic moment and fabulous photo opportunity.
The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company are the UK’s original flower petal confetti farmers, their natural, biodegradable confetti petals are a great choice for your confetti moment. Here are their three top trends for December 2016…
Red, green, white and gold are classic festive colours and combine beautifully to create merry confetti mixes. Take a look at the different petals available online and simply mix your favourites! Try Gold Delphiniums – brilliant to add into your blend to add a little touch of Christmas, and are still totally biodegradable. Red rose petals are a great choice for any winter wedding and stand out well against both the bride’s dress and darker winter backdrops, which will make your photos look great! And don’t forget the confetti cones and packaging too – The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company can create totally bespoke photo cones for you – so if you’d like a confetti cone of you and your H2B in Santa hats – they can do it!
Silver is a big trend for winter 2016 and it’s stylishly Christmassy too – add sparkle to your confetti photograph with Silver Delphinium petals and couple them with blues, purples, whites and creams for a modern, glamorous look. Silver Skeleton Leaves add elegance and interest to a wintry confetti mix and are great for decorating aisles and pathways too.
Rich and Warming
The natural, vintage, homespun wedding theme, wildflowers and bunting in summer, switches to cosy candles and blankets in winter, and for 2016 warm colours and rich hues are very popular. Rich merlot, purples, burgundy and gold are wonderful confetti colours for a winter wedding and coupled with music or brown paper confetti cones, raffia and hessian, are really Christmassy. Accessorise your confetti baskets with ribbons and little Christmas tree decorations. Scatter petals on your wedding breakfast tables for easy decorations. And don’t forget to get your flower girl to scatter petals down the aisle – it’s very good luck!
